    So Im currently stuck on gingerbread and I can not tether.. and I know I would have to sbf back to froyo and do all of that..
    But I was wondering if I could just get another ROM, like Liberty or something. Im not very knowledgeable about ROMS and what they do, so is it like a replacement of the firmware? so I wouldnt have froyo, or gingerbread, I would have liberty? and if so, will it be rooted and able to do tethering?

    Ive never had a custom ROM before, so I dont even know what I would have to do, and would I lose everything on my phone if I did?

    If anyone could basically explain ROM's to me, that would be great.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the info.
    But getting gingerbread rooted seems really complicated and I don't want to screw anything up..
    Idk what I'm going to do right now.. But thanks! Lol

    you can pm me if you still need help or if it helps pm me then i can give you my number cause i know things are more easily understood if someone talks to you verses typing to you, it is easier than most people think, dont be scared just read everything twice
